One big plus about Nexus devices is that Google will release new version of Android to the Nexus devices fast. Will the Google edition of HTC One and Galaxy S4 get this treatment too?
RND is expensive. It includes non free trial and error. Aside from customizing Android, manufacturer must develop the hardware, software drivers and manufacturing method.
I kind of like the jellybean flavoured note 2 "touchwiz nature" user interface
expandable memory is still essential, so is the removable battery
it has enough goodies and S-pen features i just love to use

Anonymous, 27 Jun 2013LG "G2" the best and unique smartphone of the year!U may specify where LG G2 standout in competition, because S4 LTE-A is the first phone manufactured with Snapdargon 800, while LG was the first one to announce in using Qualcomm's most advanced processor. And another one is the Xperia i1 aka Honami, aside from the Snapdragon 800 it will be equipped with a 16/20MP Cybershot camera, and it's IP58 certified with a camera button.
I was one of those guys who always wanted pure Android.. but..
I have that on the Nexus 7. Since then I bought the Galaxy S4 and while this might sound strange, I think the software is actually more polished on it - it enhances the experience with extra solutions that are not there on stock Android. Even the stock apps offer more flexibility and built-in functionality these days, so I don't need extra apps that I had to download on my N7 in result bloating it even more. There's also an option to remove carrier bloatware and the argument of late upgrades basically is no longer true for Samsung, which doesn't take long to upgrade their phones and supports them for a long time.
Just my personal $0.02. I'm all for having a choice though. I hope there's an option to easily make current i9505s the Nexus S4 too.
lmfao... A tech gadget that costs less than $200 to manufacture is selling for more than $600
Anonymous, 26 Jun 2013where are these roms for the galaxy s4? I want to debloat mine Go to xdadevelppers and go to the S4 forum of your carrier.
Google stock is so boring and ugly, I dont care if it runs that little bit better.
Excellent. Google Edition phones are perfect. Still waiting snapdragon800+LTE+android devices!!!.
I prefer HTC ONE over GS4. HTC ONE has more conventional IPS screen with unbitable screen sharpness.
